What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.


Run time: 7pm-9pm

National Sawdust is proud to host performance showcases for 12 recipients of the New York City Artist Corps grants from Monday, October 25 - Thursday, October 28 at 7 p.m. Announced by Mayor Bill de Blasio and Cultural Affairs Commissioner Gonzalo Casals in May 2021, the New York City Artist Corps represents a historic investment in artists by the City of New York. City Artist Corps Grants was launched in June 2021 by New York Foundation for the Arts and the Department of Cultural Affairs with support from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) as well as Queens Theatre. The $25 million program will support artists who live and work in NYC, while giving New Yorkers opportunities to experience cultural programming across the city. The City Artist Corps Showcases are made possible by the New York City Artist Corps and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Artists are at the heart of the NYC cultural sector which, prior to the pandemic, had a $21 billion economic impact on our city and which has been devastated since the pandemic lockdown was put in place. As New York emerges from the pandemic, art and culture are an essential component of the city’s recovery. City Artist Corps will make sure working artists are supported in their own right, and are empowered to participate fully in the overall recovery of the City.


The showcase on October 27th will feature:
